This paper discusses the complexity of wire hoist rope structure and describesresults of laboratory experiments using attached and embedded optical fiber sensors.These results are compared to those of similar research conducted at the U.S. Bureau ofMines using electrical conductors as embedded sensors. Both types of sensors wereembedded in order to investigate attachment procedures, and to determine sensorperformance and robustness. Results indicate that both optical fiber and electricalconductor sensors may have potential use in the evaluation of wire hoist ropes andsimilar applications.
